Having up-to-date, accurate information in a shared environment creates accountability and makes for a more engaged employee. And that, in turn, helps create a successful company. An open form of governance and compliance helps ensure participation and trust. It’s a good operational principle.

There’s power and value in community. Forming connections with other people may not give you an immediate, tangible benefit, but eventually, those relationships will pay off.

The Onspring team had the opportunity to work with an organization to help build their ERM program from the ground up. Now, with multiple years of data to review, the company has discovered tangible benefits, wide sweeping perception improvements and actionable data to facilitate change in the right direction.
On a daily basis, I work hand-in-hand (or phone-to-phone) with clients to guide them through implementing their Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) processes using platform-based software. Having been involved in the implementation of dozens of GRC processes in a number of different industries, I can tell you the one thing they have in common: they’re all different.
Excel is a great tool…in small doses. But if you’re running internal audit and enterprise risk management (ERM) functions on a global scale using a system of spreadsheets, you may be feeling the pain of inefficiency. That was the challenge facing Meredith Maher, director of audit and analytics for Alere.
The Onspring team is about to take off on a cross-country trip involving just about every mode of transportation known to man. Airplanes, shuttles, taxis, trains, rolling carts—and possibly the odd hover board—will all be employed to move our crew from Kansas City to San Francisco to Dallas in the stretch of 10 days. What could go wrong?
